Congratulations!

I’ve tried “googling” to see whether Ted or Betty Corday have a star.

his parents… executive produced and are the creators of “Days of OUR Lives” from 1965 to 1985.

Ken Corday has since taken reign from then on.

he seems to “win” emmys for what he’s trained at… music.

I don’t know… @DAYS has its dark days. I truly think, ever since, James E. Reilly, headwriter, died. DAYS has struggled

I’ve never thought Ken Corday truly minded the store… it was all in place… and things as they say.. never are the same again.

GOD love this genre… I certainly do

I so agree with you Patrick…I watched the dedication and i enjoyed listening to Ken and hearing his story…I think Day’s use to be so good and was a joy to watch but I don’t watch it anymore…it’s lacking of how it use to be and I so miss those DAYS. I think the only show that is the same as it has been since the beginning is Bold and Beautiful…I do like Y&R again since Sally and Kay returned even though a lot of people don’t, the only thing that is missing from Y&R is their classic background music…I don’t even care for GH anymore for it’s not tightly written, like other’s say that there are to many character’s…there are times I tune in which I will during the Nurses Ball…I wonder if we all are just bored for as we know there is no longer the likes of Douglas Marland, William Bell Sr, Agnes Nixon plus the production and the way the show’s are handled these days..

Do either of you know when Ron Carlivati’s writings will start????? This show is driving me crazy..how many times can Chad and Gabby be “kidnapped/held at knifepoint/locked in a vault” and is there no way to contact NBC or Sony and ask that they change the scheduling/taping to at least six weeks…this six months ahead taping seriously is killing this show…..sorry to rant…just don’t want to see Days cancelled while Ken C is out creating new shows like Ladies of the Lake….

I’ve mentioned on this site… hoping that @MF will thread the premiere airdate of RC’ scripts.

I’m with you… rant on

yeah… from what few posts I’ve read… this lady of the lake… argh ! is not going any where. which speaks volume … of Ken Corday OWN creativity. I don’t mind putting this out their.

what the heck can one say… his career was all started by his parents. and to see him in complete disregard.. if you will… that he owes his parents legacy respect and due diligence.

I really enjoyed RC writing on GH. I so hope the pendulum swings in all our favor.

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.

In a heartfelt posting on his Instagram, Galen shared special thanks to all of his fans who watched his during his run in Salem.

Gering expressed: “Thank you all so much for the incredible birthday wishes. I’ve always seen birthdays as a day of reflection, an opportunity to look back at where I’ve been and where I’m going. So, it’s oddly befitting that today also happens to be my last day at Days. Man…I have such great memories from the last 10 years. Onscreen I’ve fought for marriages and fought evil twins. I’ve put people in prison and been imprisoned. And offscreen, I’ve made friendships that I will have for a lifetime. All the while, I’ve been so fortunate to have the love and support of the greatest fans in the world. I hope you know how thankful I am to have had you at my side. With that said, the journey continues and I hope to bring you along for the ride. Thanks for the memories Days of our Lives. Like sands through the hourglass… Love Y’all”
